After days of protests against the crippling Covid lockdowns, Chinese authorities finally seem ready to relax some of the harsh Covid restrictions. China eased some of its strident Covid regulations on Monday, although the government still maintains its zero-Covid policy.

Market expectations of future rate hikes were considerably trimmed after recent US inflation data showed that inflation is cooling at a faster rate than expected. Reduced rate hike expectations diminish global recession concerns, boosting risk sentiment. Market odds are currently between a 50-bps and a 25-bps interest rate increase in December. Rate hikes are expected to taper off in 2023 as the central bank moves into a stable interest rate.
Increased risk aversion sentiment has hit crypto markets hard after the recent collapse of FTX. The FTX token faced liquidity issues, triggering a generalized crypto market sell-off. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried has resigned and the company declared bankruptcy. These developments have undermined confidence in the crypto industry, giving rise to concerns of a cascading crypto crisis. Though many cryptocurrency-related institutions are still at risk from the fallout, such as Crypto Bank Silvergate, which has seen its stock price plummeting this month.
